Full description

Take a tour with a dark twist as you embark on a ghost-hunting adventure on Summit Avenue, one of America’s greatest streets. Follow your guide and learn about the famous residents of Saint Paul – including F. Scott Fitzgerald and Sinclair Lewis - and their misfortunes.

Start your adventure at Forepaugh's towering red mansion, where former resident Joseph and his mistress are trapped for all eternity. Learn about what happened in the house and look out for the ghosts in their favorite haunting spots. 

Carry on down the Avenue and hear the sinister stories behind their elaborate turrets and gables of the other Victorian mansions and investigate the mystery of Sinclair Lewis’ lost manuscript at the William Butler House.

Conclude your adventure at the former home of F. Scott Fitzgerald and search the roof for an eery green light. Choose the 2-hour extended tour to visit an additional three locations, including the terrifying Witch’s House.
